Simplest approach is to use Java servlets. There's an example of how to
invoke Saxon from a servlet in the Saxon distribution. Using servlets will
keep the Java VM and the Saxon classes loaded, which as you point out will
greatly increase the throughput. The sample servlet also keeps compiled
stylesheets in memory, so if you use the same stylesheet repeatedly it won't
have to recompile it each time it's used.
